So, we have almost 30 songs to rehearse for the upcoming tour. Since we don’t have too much off-time this spring, we gonna have to whip all the new songs for the album tour into shape at these rehersals in addition to getting the 15th anniversary set together. I think Pasi has the hardest work since none of the songs are too familiar to him, for the rest of us it’s a lot easier. I managed to program all my sounds last week, so no there are just minor tweaks that I’ll do on the spot. I just hope we all can get these tunes into our memory-banks before the tour starts….in fact we don’t have much of a choice, this MUST work out fine.Don’t worry, we’ll get it:
Oh holy crap what a mess. We spent the whole day cleaning up our rehersal place and setting up the gear. So no music today, but we’re ready for tomorrow ;-)
Spent the day playing through all the tracks on the list, since every song was a first for Pasi we had to play through all the basic stuff as well…after that we spent more time on the stuff that we haven’t played in a while and the stuff that we’ve never played before. A good long day in the cold rehersal place.
In the morning we scribbled down the set for the 15th anniversary show, what a fucking ride it will be,
this is gonna be great ! Played through a couple of songs first and then the band (excluding mr.T) run
through the entire set….and it worked ;-) After that it was time to call it a day. Tomorrow is the last day of rehersals, I guess we’re getting pretty fast at getting our shit together.
Started the morning with computer stuff, making intros and outros and sorting out stuff. Then it was time to run through the news songs that we’ll put in the set on the European Tour. We still need to work at those during soundchecks but at least we got through them. One last run through the complete set, working out endings and transitions and then we spent a couple of hours packing our stuff for the tour and cleaning up the rehersal space, since we won’t need it before the end of the world tour we’re giving it up now.R.I.P cold warehouse.
…and we’re done. I’m gonna go through the stuff once more on Monday just to be sure that I’ll remember it all, we still have one more rehersal with the full production before the shows start…
on Wednesday our break from the touring circuit will be over…after just over 5 months of doing other stuff. It’s gonna be great to be back, can’t wait….
